Stephen Weatherly’s youth football camp provides young athletes an opportunity to connect with a current NFL player while receiving guidance on how to succeed on and off the field. Working with the YMCA, Stephen’s camp hosts 200 kids from underprivileged communities. This camp is free to all, as most families in the area would not be able to pay for a football camp. Stephen’s goal is to use his platform as a role model to these youth to positively affect the young athletes within the Minneapolis community.
Stephen covers three topics to highlight how they can be utilized on and off the field to achieve greatness. A great work ethic, positive encouragement to step out of their comfort zone, and the value of an education are taught to the youth football participants. This helps inspire change in the community and motivates the youth participants to become great in every aspect of their life.
